Mom's Carrot Pineapple Salad

I've always loved this, and the last birthday dinner my mom cooked for me, this was on the menu.

Carrot & Pineapple Salad

1 small can crushed pineapple in juice, drained, juice reserved
1 cup carrots, gated
1 large pkg orange jello
liquid called for: juice/water

Prepare jello as according to directions, including reserved pineapple juice as part of cold liquid. Add drained crushed pineapple and grated carrot. Chill till partly set, and stir. Continue to chill until set.

Such a classic! Do you ever add milk/cream/cool whip to it? I've tried this salad both ways...though it's been a while Thanks for sharing Constance, Jell-o is so fun

I love Cool Whip on just about everything sweet, Jessica. I'll have to give that a try.
I'm funny about raisins, Maniac. I love them in cookies, cakes and breads...even to eat plain...but I don't care for them in salads or savory dishes. I'm just too Midwest, I think.

I am perfectly content with a salad of leaves, raisins/sultans, almonds and a little bit of a herb dressing - I've loved to pair salty and sweet at the same time and that does the job wonderfully. Do you like raisins in lettuce salads too?

No I haven't tried raisins in green salads as yet... I just love the sweet combinations of shredded carrots and raisins... but it is an intriguing idea... I would like to try that!!

You really must, it's a great substitution for bacon bits (Albeit one with a very non-pork flavour )

This was favorite of my mom too! Could count on her to bring it to dinner. She loved pineapple anyway. Brought a sweet memory and I thank you for it. Time goes so fast that thinking of her seems to get so scarce. YOu gave me pause for thought. Appreciate t his.

My favorite toppings for a basic green salad are shredded carrots, raisins and sunflower seeds with ranch dressing.

They are never gone as long as they live in your heart.
